Zoe has cabin fever too!

Zoe is just OVER winter, like the rest of us, right.  She's so bored and wants to run outside, go for long walks and play frisbee, but for now naps are good.  She also misses Luke who she totally adores, he went to Vegas to live with his sister for a few months, the weather is beautiful there 60's and sunny, lucky!   For Zoe's sake I sure hope spring isn't too far away.  I'm going to get a couple breaks away to warmer weather in the near future, YES I need warm sunshine!  This morning on the weather they said 6 wks from now sunset will be at 7pm here, yippee, that's not that far away right! 
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

This made me SO happy!

This comment was left in my feedback section on my Etsy page for me today. 
Debbie did a wonderful job of recreating my uncle's childhood companion, Reenie. It brought back so many memories to my entire family. We were all brought to tears with his return and haven't stopped taking turns hugging him. Thanks so much for all of your hard work.
It almost brought me to tears that I could do this for them.  I was so scared I wouldn't be able to recreate it but the story was so sweet I really wanted to.  When the uncle of the woman who ordered this doll was young he had a doll that he LOVED and carried it with him everywhere he went and one day it disappeared.  She wanted me to make one like it for him.  The doll is a little different than I'm used to making.  I was practically holding my breath hoping to hear back if they liked it or not.  So this made my day! 
Hope you're all having a good day too!

My "NEW" Valentine Raggedy Ann's

These are my three new Valentine's Day Raggedy Ann's up for adoption on my Etsy page.  Pop on over and take a look at them.  They are way cuter in person, I know I always say that but it's true really they are!  Now on to my next project tomorrow. 
It's was freezing cold here today hopefully this really cold stuff doesn't last long it isn't fun.  Even the 20's are ok but once it gets to the single digits and below brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr not good especially when the wind is blowing like today.  How many more months of winter?!!@#
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I've been busy making "NEW" dolls!

I'm starting out 2011 making some cute new dolls.  This one is Taylor Ann, she just got caught in her curlers hence the surprised face.  My inspiration to make her was finding these adorable vintage curlers in an antique store.  I just LOVE finding cute things that give me inspiration to create something new.  I'm currently making 3 Valentine dolls to add to my Etsy page in the next few days.  Then maybe St Pats day not sure I have a bunch of cute vintage toys to give me ideas for the next cuties. 
Winter is back to it's normal COLD, snowy self this year here in MN, we haven't had one of these for a while.  It's a good thing I'm gonna get a couple breaks away to someplace warm in the next few months, I know I'm sooooooooooo lucky, I wish everyone could get away.  Hugs, hope your staying warm!
